Registry Of National Flags And Their Meaning

Post by Lockdownn on Fri May 08, 2015 8:58 pm

This registry will include a record of your nation's flags and the meaning of them.

If you want yours spoilered and recorded in this OP then post your registry below followed by a plea for records keeping.

This is also the place to share your historical flags.

I will try and create a timeline type record if you wish.

Please spoiler large images!

Flag meaning:



The 3-3, overal 6 tribes in the middle crossing each other represent the 6 tribes that were united under Ahet-Apep I. and eventually formed Apepistan.
The 40 rays of the Sun represent the 40 tribes that joined later to the United Kingdoms.
The dragon-serpent in the middle is the national symbol of the United Kingdoms of Apepistan, which is guarding and holding together all the tribes. The flag is altered after a certain number of tribes have joined the United Kingdoms, because all of them need to be represented on the flag.

The serpent is a very common symbol in apopic culture; it represents wisdom, cunning and strength. Many variations of it exist; sometimes it's feathered, sometimes it's winged, sometimes it has arms (and wings), looking more like a dragon.

Royal crest/Symbol of the Monarch:

The black serpent with an open mouth, showing its fangs was also the crest-animal of  Ahet-Apep I; each ruler uses a slightly different version, the crest of Ahet-Apep LII, the current monarch, is the black serpent coiled around a sword.
